Melanie enjoyed nature more than anything. She loved to draw and loved art as a whole. She especially loved to do any and everything with her son Isaiah Ellis, her only child, who she protected and nurtured like a mama bear over her cub. Melanie would give her time whenever she could to help with events that had anything to do with Isaiah.
